Well, here I am again. I had all these aspirations of writing a full blog/creating a tutorial on some of these projects and for the rest of them figuring out creative ways to inspire you. However, I don't think that's going to happen. Plus a lot of them don't need any extra explanation at all... so here are a few bits of my crafty life.
I used cheap(ish) frames and pictures that I took or got
online and put them in the downstairs bathroom.
Fruit Basket to Toiletry Storage:
I no longer used the fruit basket in the kitchen because we hung more cabinets up, so I hung it in the downstairs bathroom. It has Colgate Whisps, washcloths, Band-Aids, Neosporin, cotton balls, floss, and other things that are handy like that.
It's all the rage on Pinterest. Haha, jk. But seriously easy.
Picture frame, ribbon, scrapbook paper, dry erase marker. Done.
So much fun and easy to do. Rubberband rolled up diapers and build them into tiers around 1 lg and 1 small baby bottle in the middle. (6 diapers on top, 12 middle, and 18-21 bottom) Fill with little gifts.
Book Pages Wreath:
Wreath form, book, and lots of hot glue. I purchased all of the supplies at the Dollar Tree.
Collage for Kaylee:
This was inspired by a down comforter given to me by my grandma before she died. It was lavender with white flowers on one side, sage on the other. I decided to use it in Kaylee's room, so I made this to go with it. I added the other colors to brighten it up a little.
I decided to make one instead of buying the expensive kind. They really aren't hard to make. Use a cookie cutter to make the pineapple, watermelon, and cantaloupe flowers and a melon baller to do the rest. Place on skewers and then insert into a floral arrangement foam in a basket.
Those are just a few things that I have done in the past.
I know... they aren't the most original ideas, but they were fun.
